Quillon denies transfer approach amid United link

Javi Garcia’s agent has confirmed that reports stating that Manchester United have made a bid for the Benfica ace are only rumours.

The Spanish midfielder has been a key feature in a revival at the Estadio da Luz, and was part of the team that frustrated Sir Alex Ferguson’s men in the Champions League group stages this season.

Despite a raft of Premier League and European clubs chasing Garcia, Manuel Garcia Quillon has confirmed that there has been no offer from United or anyone else.

“I cannot say anything, no one has talked to me,” Quillon told Portuguese TV station TSF, translated into English by Sky Sports.

“There are no offers, just rumours.”

Meanwhile, Tomasz Kuszczak has left the Premier League champions to join Watford on loan for the remainder of the season.

The Polish goalkeeper has not had a look-in at Old Trafford this term, as David De Gea and Anders Lindegaard battle it out for the number one jersey at the club.

Kuszczak has admitted that he is looking forward to getting back to regular first-team football and is dedicated to playing for Watford.

“I really miss the feeling of a matchday when you’re involved,” he told The Championship club’s official website.

“Where Watford were in the Championship table never crossed my mind. I knew this to be a good club and I didn’t have to think long at all about coming down here.

“Football is my passion – not just a job. That’s why I’m here; Watford is my club, my team now,” he concluded.
